StayNYC is excited to launch our blog.
We will be updating our page with blog posts about bed & breakfasts, New York City travel, and how recent legislation has affected registered B&Bs here in the city.
The media has taken an interest in our issue with recent articles in both the New York Times and the New York Daily News. These articles are very helpful in our effort to educate legislators and the public to the current plight of B&Bs in New York City.
Our members successful B&Bs are an important part of what makes New York City so great. Diversity in short-term stay options are key components to the vibrant and booming tourism industry here in the City.
That is why we will work hard to educate legislators and the public on why B&Bs need to remain legal and open for business. Recent legislation on illegal hotels has made our members the unintended targets for steep fines and possible closure. Illegal hotels are a serious problem, but we strongly believe legitimate taxpaying business such as ours, should not be the collateral damage in the fight against illegal hotels.
